Day to Night in Blazers

Burgundy Blazer, Floral Blazer, Gold Sequins Blazer- Styldrv for Spring Break (a/w '12) collection, Grey tee & leopard print sandals- Zara, Blue denims- VeroModa, Metallic bag- Asos, White tank & black denims- H&M, Studded bag- Zara, Spiked necklace- Blur, Blue Silk dress- River Island, Jewellery- assorted

I love wearing blazers. Unfortunately for me, this city gives me merely 2 months to actually enjoy wearing them through the day. So as soon as it got a bit pleasant, I grabbed the chance to flaunt my new blazers. Be it a casual meeting, a friendly lunch or a glam soiree, blazers are all I've been reaching for. I would tell you how versatile they are but I'm sure you already know that.

For the first look, I paired this gorgeous on-trend oxblood/burgundy blazer with a laid back grey tee with leather patches tucked into a simple pair of denims. An overload of gold jewellery, a metallic bag, leopard print sandals and I'm out the door.

For the next look, I went for a winter floral blazer which was perfect for that quick catch up lunch. A basic tank top and my trusted black jeans with burgundy pumps was my choice of attire. Keeping the rest of the outfit basic helps the blazer shine in all its glory. I accessorized with some rose gold jewellery and a studded clutch to add some edge.

For the last outfit, I had to pick this glam gold sequins blazer. I was heading to a glam soiree and I would settle for nothing less. Paired it with a printed silk blue dress to balance the look. Finished the ensemble with a tiny gold bag and minimalistic gold heels.

I hope this video gave you a few styling ideas. And for those of you who want to buy these blazers but want to try them on first, this is your lucky week.

Top 5 Favourite MAC Lipsticks

      L to R- Shy girl, Chatterbox, Vegas Volt, Impassioned, Russian Red

According to me, every girl needs 5 lipsticks in her life. A nude to take you through the day, a pink to brighten up those dull work days, a coral for the perfect lunch date with your girlfriends, a fuchsia when you want to look your best and a red for those glam nights. So if you're a MAC lover or you love MAC lipsticks but get overwhelmed by their wide range of colour everytime you visit the store, this list might help you make a decision.

1) The Nude
 Shy girl is the perfect nude to get you through your daily routines or to balance out that sexy smokey eye for a night out. You can use it with a blush or coral lip liner to enhance the colour. I love it on it's own with a little bit of pink gloss over it.

2) The Pink
Chatterbox is one of the first few lipsticks I ever purchased from MAC. It's a red tone pink which would suit most Indian skin tones. It's an Amplified finish so the colour pay off is amazing. You must check this out if you love pink lips.

3) The Coral
MAC has a wide range of coral lipsticks but Vegas Volt is my favourite. It's a coral with pink understones which looks amazing when paired with a bronzer and a couple of coats of mascara. Whenever I feel like dressing up an outfit for the day time, this is what I reach for. 

4) The Fuchsia
Impassioned is a colour that I had to literally run after. It's usually out of stock and once you own it you will know why! Its the most beautiful fuchsia lipstick. One of my absolute favourite bright lips to wear, this colour is a must have for anyone who loves a bright bold lip!

5) The Red
A girl can never do without a red lipstick. And Russian Red has saved me on various occasions! One swipe of this matte red lipstick and I'm ready to face anyone! If you're looking for that typical pin-up red lipstick,  this will end your search. It is a matte lipstick so I'd suggest you scrub and moisturize your lips well before you apply it. I do  love Ruby Woo and Lady Danger as well but this one is definitely my favourite of them all. 

These are my Top 5 favourites! They are priced at Rs.990/-. Which MAC colours do you love? Do leave the names below, I'd love to check them out.
